I have compiled xen-unstable from source and I am unable to boot the kernel that this creates. It appears to not be able to find my logical volumes to mount the root volume. Shortly after this, the kernel panics and the machine reboots.

Is there any option I can use when building the kernel to stop this reboot after the panic so that I can find out what is causing it?

I know about echoing things to proc to stop reboot / change the amount of time before reboot, but since I'm not getting far enough to have a proc filesystem, this doesn't help me.
